Fires of Creation: Mono-Purple Night Market

Erobert here and we’re back again this week with Fires of Creation! Settling more into Purple, and discerning what sorts of strategies emerge from this new card pool, I’m working out a deck in mono Purple. Relying only on Purple’s distinctive features, items and large minions, this deck seeks to make the most of high gem costs and the virtual card advantage of colorless items and temporary mana. Let’s get started! Virtual Card Advantage As we have discussed in previous

A Closer Look at the Features of Mythgard

Erobert here, and this week we’ll be taking a bit of a breather to highlight some of the exciting features of Mythgard. This is an expansion of some parts of this blog post at Inked Gaming that you should definitely check out as well. While more veteran players are probably familiar with the many ins and outs of Mythgard, the features are sufficiently complex that it’s worth going through them carefully and deliberately, especially as guidebooks in game are still

Fires of Creation: Blue Red Purple Muse

Erobert here with another new deck this week on Fires of Creation! We’re looking at more experimental aggro builds, trying to make the most of enchantments for our aggro swarm and especially focusing on movement. Shifting minions around the board and making sure to get all the pokes from your little minions can take aggressive strategies all the way, especially with the help of some vital enchantments. Let’s get started! Lanes Fast, Slow, and Open Among the most distinctive features

Fires of Creation: Mono-Orange Zealots

Erobert here, welcoming you once again to Fires of Creation! This week we’re refining mono Orange Zealots, focusing on a swarming aggressive strategy which can quickly explode into a critical combo turn with the help of some key Rebels. Rather than backing aggressive minions with escalating threats as we saw in the rangier aggro strategies of mono Green, mono Orange plans to end games quickly by comboing over the top. Let’s get to it! The Origins Combo Archetypes Previously, in

Fires of Creation: Yellow Valkyries

Welcome back to Fires of Creation with me, erobert! We’re back with another variation on Valkyries that you may see as a Featured Deck. We’re focusing again on making the most of card diversity by adding another color to the Valkyrie shell. This time, working in Yellow, we can also showcase multicolored cards and some underrated gems seen in Noah’s picks for underplayed cards. Let’s get started! Long-term Value and Minions As I discussed last week, in considering the possibility

An Abstract Philosophy of Deckbuilding in Mythgard

Hello once again, erobert here to talk Mythgard! This week rather than focusing on a specific deck and its development, I’ve been thinking more about deckbuilding generally. Frequently, someone on the Discord will ask for a much more general overview, a sense of where to start, how to even get to the place where you can finely tune the intimate details of a deck. Working from the most basic elements of deckbuilding and card games themselves, I hope to find

Fires of Creation: Purple Valkyries

Welcome once again to Fires of Creation with me, erobert! This week we’re getting into Purple and one of the most viable tribal decks in the core set: Valkyries. Despite not featuring any Valkyries in the color itself, Purple offers combat tricks and opportunities which complement the Valkyrie shell. While the deck includes Purple minions which cannot benefit directly from tribal synergies, the items these minions generate can be readily utilized by your Valkyrie army. Valkyries and Tribal Synergy Mythgard,

Fires of Creation: Mono Green

Welcome back to Fires of Creation! I’m erobert and this week I am taking a look at how aggressive strategies can interact with the resource system and mechanics of Mythgard. Red and Blue are maybe best known for aggro strategies, especially in monocolored decks, given their deep reservoir of creatures and removal. I’m interested, however, in how Green, a color more known for support spells and boneyard tricks, can be focused into an aggressive strategy. Resource Management and Color Fixing

Fires of Creation: The New Necromantic

Welcome to Fires of Creation! I am erobert, a name you might recognize attached to pleas for people to join 2v2, and I am excited to dig deeper into the decks of Mythgard. Mechanically, Mythgard is a joy to play, but what feels intensely fun to me is the variety of play styles and deckbuilding opportunities. Even though Mythgard is in alpha, decks have been spotted in the wild sporting everything from the fastest aggro to the most contemplative control,
